My mom slipped into a coma on Dec 30th I was told by the doctors her only chance was to be placed on a ventilator so her body to regain it's strength.i refused since she had a dnr and we had discuss this was not an option. Two days later she woke up. On the 10th they finally removed her bipap and was eating soft foods. I have been her caregiver for nearly 10 years and hearing the good news I spent a down day relaxing at home thankful I had made the right decision. At 0024 monday morning I got the call she had taken a turn for the worse. By the time I got to the hospital she had passed away. I can not stop thinking if I had taken the doctor advise would my mother would still be with me. I wish now I fully understood what dnr meant and it's consequences.
